Overview of attributes

Version 1.0 of the Fifteenmile Valley 7.5' quadrangle comprises four ARC/INFO coverages, of
which two contain geologic data and two contain cartographic features: fif_geo (geology),
fif_str (structural point data), fif_orn (structural line ornamentation), and fif_ldr
(annotation leaders).  Two INFO tables, lines.rel and points.rel provide a full description
of each of the geologic line and point features in the database.  A full source citation is
provided in the Entity_and Attribute_Detail_Citation section of this metadata document.
Geologic data represented by line entities and the polygons they delineate are contained in
the coverage FIF_GEO.  For display purposes, the geology coverage contains one annotation
subclass: anno.geo contains unit labels.
Geological point data includes site-specific information describing the types and the
orientation of bedding, foliation, and lineations. One annotation subclass is included in
the geologic points coverage, FIF_STR: anno.attitude displays the respective dip and plunge
values associated with individual point data.

A complete description of the polygon, line, and point data coding schemes is available in U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Reports OFR 97-859, OFR 97-860, and OFR 97-861 (full source citations follow): Matti, J.C., Miller, F.K., Powell, R.E., Kennedy, S.A., Bunyapanasarn, T.P., Koukladas, Catherine, Hauser, R.M., and Cossette, P.M., 1997b, Geologic-point attributes for digital geologic-map databases produced by the Southern California Areal Mapping Project (SCAMP), Version 1.0: U.S.Geological Survey Open-File Report 97-859 Matti, J.C., Miller, F.K., Powell, R.E., Kennedy, S.A., and Cossette, P.M., 1997c, Geologic-polygon attributes for digital geologic-map databases produced by the Southern California Areal Mapping Project (SCAMP), Version 1.0: U.S.Geological Survey Open-File Report 97-860 Matti, J.C., Powell, R.E., Miller, F.K., Kennedy, S.A., Ruppert, K.R., Morton, G.L., and Cossette, P.M., 1997a, Geologic-line attributes for digital geologic-map databases produced by the Southern California Areal Mapping Project (SCAMP), Version 1.0: U.S.Geological Survey Open-File Report 97-861

fif_geo.pat

Geologic units (LABL) and their corresponding names (NAME) identified in the Fifteenmile Valley 7.5'quadrangle

Label Definition
TAG a reference label for subgroups of polygons of the geologic-map unit identified by LABL TAG is defined as LABL followed by an upper-case letter, e.g., QwA, QwB, orQwC, etc. All map units in the Fifteenmile Valley database have only one TAG designation, TAG A.
LABL geologic map unit label, in plain text
PLABL Coded geologic map unit label used to generate plot labels with relevant stratigraphic symbols. The geologic units with LABL designating Mesozoic (Mz), and Triassic (Tr) have keystroke substitute characters, }, and ^ respectively, that call their corresponding symbols from the Geoage Font Group. Geologic map unit labels will plot on derivative map plots with appropriate stratigraphic symbols if PLABL is used as the source for unit labels. The Geoage Font Group is accessed through geofont.txt.
SHDPS polygon color (as integer value) from shadeset scamp2.shd (included in the data package)
SHDFIL polygon fill pattern (as integer value) from shadeset geology2.shd (included in the data package)
NAME Geologic name of map unit (see list under LABL attribute)

fif_geo.aat

Geologic features such as contacts and faults that bound rock-unit polygons (a complete description of each line type is available in the data table, lines.rel.)

Label Definition
L-TAG Coded alpha-numerical symbol that relates arc to definition of line type in dictionary look-up table (lines.rel). For description of attributes in line classification dictionary, refer to USGS Open-File Report 97-861 (see Entity_and_Attribute_Detail_Citation)
L-SYMB stores appropriate line symbol value from the lineset geoscamp2.lin (included in the data package)

fif_str.pat
